are the some of the temporary stimulus measures in the early obama administration and also in 2011 that were temporary tax cuts that were designed to give the economy a boost by their nature that are temporary and should be revisited. we may conclude the economy still needs that boost and that is totally appropriate. some of it is the alternative minimum tax that is basically always broken and always needs some changes to it. the sequesters on domestic and defense spending are products of the blackmail episode of 2011 when congressional leaders refused to enter, refused to do as is routinely done and extend the debt limit and created this sequester as a way to force some action they had no intention of doing themselves. but the biggest part of it comes from the bush tax cuts and the reason the bush tax cuts expire is an interesting story. in 2001 and 2003, 2001 we had a budget surplus and both democrats and republicans wanted to cut taxes. democrats wanted to cut them half as much and put more emphasis on the middle class, less on tax cuts for the rich. republicans did not only want, they wa
they perceive to be even handed but what they're doing is encouraging the obama administration, and what they're really doing is encouraging radicals. >> you think the world radicals were emboldened by the election? >> they didn't support romney. they were encouraged by obama. >> stephanie: there is trouble now with israel and that never happened before. >> back in 1972 richard nixon denied anything to do with a low level--had the press not been aggressive nixon would have gotten away with it. and the break in the watergate hotel was not nearly as important as failing to define a terrorist attack that killed four americans. obama made a mistake not getting ahead of the story. he should have given the facts weeks ago and the press let him get away with it, but now the heat is coming down, as it should. >> stephanie: i heard this on limbaugh. worse than watergate. worse than watergate. third rate burglary. >> if i had a nickel every time the far right said something obama did was worse than watergate. >> stephanie: clearly. jim, what are you going to say? >> it can be a terror attack that was i
said a few weeks ago that i thought that based on the evidence we had then, this was the obama administration's watergate. this gets deeper and deeper every day. there is a report by jennifer griffin and adam housley on fox news.com that miss broadwell, the mistress of general petraeus, allegedly told a group in denver that the reason that there was an attack on the c.i.a. consulate and annext was that libyan militia members were being held there. now, if that's true, that puts a lie to all it this motion about a video. >> steve: where did she find that out? >> the story also reports that some congressional members were considering charging general petraeus, head of the c.i.a., with perjury, but withholding judgment until he testified before congress this week. >> steve: i read in the "wall street journal" this morning that apparently when they approached her and they said, what's going on here, she gave hem her computer and apparently there were classified documents on her computer. but petraeus said she didn't get them from me. >> she denied it. and he denied it. but someone
, and e has promised robust oversight of the obama administration. >> i'm sure he has. [laughter] and speaking of oversight, isn't that -- that's one of the few places on the senate side where there might be a new -- no, i'm sorry. speaking of government reform. what do they call it? >> yeah, tom carper's set to take over that panel. joe lieberman's retiring, and susan collins, who's the ranking republican, is term limited out, again, because as we were talking about with the house folks, senate republicans have that same rule. and so it looks like it's going to be tom coburn. which might seem a little, you know, i think coburn has a reputation of being, um, you know, a finger in the eye kind of guy. but he's actually been very serious, and he has a very talented group of people working for him on that committee doing investigations and what not. and carper's a pretty conciliatory guy. i actually think that they'll probably get along pretty well. and both of them will likely be focused on that government affairs part of the committee. um, not that they're going to ignore homeland
the regulatory environment of a second obama term. in the past 90 days the obama administration has posted 6,125 regulations and notices on its regulations.gov website, an average of 68 a day, jenna. jenna: wow, doug mcelway live from d.c. thank you. rick: frustration turning to violence after weeks without power on long island, new york. an electrical worker is now in the hospital after getting sucker punched by an angry long island resident. john apple white came up from florida to help out with the recovery efforts. he had been working 16-hour days when he was hit. now he's recovering from a broken jaw and cracked cheekbone. >> he gave me no signs of anything aggressive. he was in a nice vehicle, dressed fairly nice from what i could tell. as soon as i got within an arm's reach of him he decked me. i'm not going to let it get me down. i even skroeu what i do enjoy what i do. i'm not going to let one person spoil this. >> others are taking utility companies to court following a class action lawsuit against the long island power authority. do they have a case? lis wiehl is a fox news legal
to talk about specifically if he is asked whether or not there is going to be a benefit for a second obama administration for the african-american community and how they're doing economically? and also, you see this president over the last couple of weeks who is more emotional and we've seen him cry the last couple of times, the last couple of weeks. is he iffing to feel that he can be a little bit more of himself, more open and really own this administration, own his policy, and be a more comfortable president in the next four years? >> he got re-elected rather decisively, 332 electoral college votes. you only need 270 to be elected. he goes in right now with a lot of confidence, but, you know what, all that confidence in the world can't help if the country is about to go over the fiscal cliff. >> yeah. you ow, i mean, it really is something when you think about it going in the second term that he is going to be dealing with something like this. there are some advisor who's say, yeah, call the bluff, go over the cliff. it's not going to be as bad as you think because you've got more lever
and believes that the 39.6 number is still on the table and that the can democrats and the obama administration still have the mandate. >> you're talking higher marginal rate ps p. >> yes. he doesn't believe there are not enough deductions. so many of the ceos that came out of that meeting seemed to be wink winwink, nod nod, says may he's not just talking 35%. deductions plus. >> i thought for sure raising the rate is on the table. that there will be no deal without raising the rate on the wealthy. >> the idea is raising the amount of taxes that wealthy pay and you can get there two different ways. one is by raising the marginal rate, one is raising the effective rate. >> but i don't. >> i've heard that as a way of stopping raising the rate. i don't think there's any discussion -- there will be no deal without eliminating the burke tax cuts on the wealthy. >> i think people are coming around to that view. >> but this is the republican view. >> but i'm saying -- >> if you listened to the president carefully last friday -- >> i'm not ed advocating either friday. >> the president last friday -- th
program, the graham questioning why the obama administration sent out ambassador rice to handle the after the attack in the first place. >> i can't believe the president sent something out to talk about benghazi that that had nothing to do with benghazi. why did they pick her? she is not in charge of consulate security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia senator john any isakson will join us. martha: as we mentioned the house foreign affairs committee on ben
. >>> and some of the obama administration's sharpest critics on benghazi actually skipped the briefing. among them, senator john mccain. when one of our producers questioned him about it yesterday, he got very testy. listen. >> senator mccain, listen, i understand that you did miss this briefing yesterday -- >> i have no more comment -- i have no comments about my schedule and i'm not going to comment on how i spend my time with the media. >> is there a legitimate feeling that you're complaining about wanting more -- >> i have no comment. >> why can't you comment on that? >> because i have the right as a senator to have no comment. and who the hell are you to tell me whether i can or not? >> later, a more cheerful mccain explained what happened to piers morgan. >> it was a scheduling error. i can assure you i got all the information. >> you can tell there that mccain was a little sorry he went off as he did. our producer was ted barrett, one of the best producers and reporters in capitol hill. those questions were not at all inappropriate. >>> 11 minutes after the hour. that hearing mccain wa
-ed, the goldman sachs ceo says the obama administration should model itself after the roosevelt administration, back to the great depression and world war ii. blankfein notes in the 19 there was, quote, extreme bitterness between the business community and the roosevelt administration, but two sides worked together and spurred an increase in industrial production that lifted the united states out of the great depression. blankfein also writes there's more than $1 trillion of cash sitting on the balance sheets of non-u.s. financial companies with certainty about tax rates, companies will increase their capital expenditures, currently at anemic levels. he goes on to add that broadening the personal income tax base by closing loopholes will generate substantial additional revenue while minimizing increases in marginal rates that could stifle risk taking and robust growth. blankfein also stresses the importance of restoring confidence in public finance by implementing spending cuts, entitlement reform, and revenue increases. in the meantime, richard fisher tells cnbc that the central bank can't do
made perhaps under the obama administration as the chief economist pointed out in a press conference at the eia. another factor that they are looking back in terms of the international energy trade is the direction where oil is going and we're going to see a lot more of oil going from the middle east to asia as the u.s. becomes less dependent on middle eastern oil. that's something that will change. we're also looking at what's happening in terms of the natural gas landscape and there again the international agency is saying that we will see the u.s. becoming self-sufficient by 2035 and reducing its dependence in terms of where it will get natural gas and in fact becoming a net exporter of natural gas by 2020. a lot of key revelations here from the international energy agency. some say it may be too bold a prediction but many analysts have said the u.s. will have to change in terms of the debate that's been going on about foreign oil particularly what we heard over the election cycle. the fact that we are looking at the u.s. becoming self-sufficient by 2035 and in fact becoming the t
, obamacare effects our employee practices as far as benefits we can provide. i noticed that the obama administration is targeting businesses like papa john's pizza, comment openly and honestly saying you add exspent spences to business, the business has to react. it is so naive to watch different callers say different things. there's a pot of money that comes in, that's rf new. there is a pot of expenses that goes out, those are your expenses, every business and family in america starts with the revenue, prioritizes the expenses, and has something left over to live on. these tax policies, when we roll out the--frankly the press, and i'm not on a tangent on liberal media, using the term it's only going to affect the upper 2% of taxpayers, you really got to flesh that out. i hope the congressman would, too. two represent maybe 40% of all the taxes raised. i would like to seat republicans -- we are talking about 40% of all revenue raised. not get into a 2%. reasonable people who make 50 grand are going $250,000 that's a lot to me. if you are only talking about the upper two people, we ar
administration advisers to give their opinions of the fiscal cliff, and peter orszag was president obama's budget director. next, they are interviewed by peter cook for about a half hour. >> >> the fiscal problems and the tax issues. we have some people. we're talking about finding ground. i am talking with peter orszag sa. we have professor martin feldstein. he has commented on these issues, and donald merrin. we have three experts to talk about these issues. walk us through this minefield and see where they year might be common ground. peter orszag, let me start with you, and the basic question about whether or not tax revenue has to be part of this conversation to begin with and whether the two sites, whether there is more common ground. >> tax revenue has to be part of the solution here, but because of the underlying budget math, but also because of the election that was just held and the desire of at least the administration to obtain that additional revenue. on the substance, the point i would make is whatever comes out of this fiscal cliff arrangements, i will now step out of the bounds of
is administration officials are already suggesting to congress that mr. obama is willing to let the deadline pass. >> new york state alone is estimated storm damage at $50 billion. that would make sandy the second most expensive storm in u.s. history after only katrina. >>> airline officials say more pilots are leaving the job and government rules require new pilots to have much more flight experience. >> this strikes me as a cynical effort on the part of some in the industry to cry wolf. >> look at what happened in the pit. things got a little hot at the nascar race. >>> nfl commissioner roger goodell said the high quality of hd tv is hurting the games because the experience of watching at home is so good. is it, though, say guys with wives? >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. investigators want to know why it took so long to learn of the affair. >> another woman said she received threatening e-mails from petraeus's mystery. bob ohr is in washington. >> all this started a few months ago when a woman in tampa got harassing e-mails she turned over to the fbi. they were tracked
this time i think is administration officials are suggesting to members of congress that mr. obama is willing to let the deadline pass, to let things go the cliff if he can't get a deal he wants. it's a strong negotiating tool. charlie, norah, gayle. >> bill plante, thank you. powerful explosion devastated a neighborhood in indianapolis over the weekend. twhoems were left in pieces and the fire damaged dozens more. as terrell brown reports fire officials are trying to figure out the cause of the blast. >> reporter: two people were killed by the massive blast that was heard for miles. and left this indianapolis neighborhood littered with debris. >> i first thought it was a bomb. >> reporter: in every direction walls crumbled and windows shattered. nearly three dozen homes were damaged or destroyed. >> there are homes that will have to be torn down and there are homes that can be inhabited in the next day two. >> reporter: the explosion happened around 11:00 p.m. saturday causing residents to flee into night. seven were injured. >> house felt like it moved a foot or so. and all we co
after president obama won re-election. certainly not how the administration envisioned the first few days of the new term. they are certainly stunned by some of these developments and trying to stay focused on the fiscal cliff, that's something that's pending and potentially could impact all americans, however, this is something they'll have to deal with, president obama is set to hold a news conference this week. he'll get a lot of questions about this. about the timing. about how this entire process has been handled. >> the president is supposed to meet with labor leaders today, obviously the allen and petraeus is taking up a lot of oxygen in washington, d.c., today. but this is an important meeting about how to approach the fiscal cliff to come to a compromise? >> right, there are a couple of different motmotivations for th meetings. one, to get a sense of the different interests coming from business leaders. also, i think president obama would like to get some of these folks on his side to come up with a balanced approach to deficit reduction. lee saunders will be here afsme. so,
ryan is dismissing suggestions that president obama's victory gives his administration a mandate to raise taxes on the rich. returning to capitol hill yesterday for the first time since the election, ryan pointed the republicans keeping control of the house as a sign that the country isn't sold on the democrats' agenda. take a listen to this. >> whether the people intended or not, we've got divided government. >> you don't think there's a mandate here? >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these ideas that we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. and unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we're going to have to make sure it works in the next two years. that means, i think, that both parties have to talk to each other. >> but could you see yourself supporting a plan that raises tax rates? >> i'm not for raising tax rates. >> so you won't support a plan? >> i don't want to get into negotiating with the media, but i do not support rais
mccain that they are not going to cooperate with the second administration of barack obama, that they are going to stall out all of his nominations. this is their warning shot that they are going to filibuster her appointment and perhaps anybody else's. i think that's what it is. and here is the intelligence committee member. >> again, i'm really confused. the only point in contention really is whether or not this attack emerged from a protest and as soon as the information became clearer and it did take some time for that to happen, then that was perfectly clarified. there is absolutely -- it's inconceivable to me for anybody to speculate there would be a deliberate misleading of the american people. why would there be? it's perfectly inconsequential al. there was a spontaneous demonstration and the terrorist groups organized to take opportunistic advantage of it or not. in any case, there is no advantage to mislead the american people in that regard. i mean you have to have motivation behind it and there is none. and as soon as the intelligence became clearer and as a mem
much and where? >> well i think this is a tremendous opportunity for barack obama to lead. he chose not to do that at the start of his administration in 08. instead of focusing on the economy went right after obamacare. he is basketball player. i think he could pull the ultimate head fake and actually not raise rates on small businesses. the markets would soar. he would get a lot of goodwill. he gets the budget in place and doesn't touch tax rates on small businesses, i think his approval ratings and market goes through the roof. rick: i had thought maybe we would hear from pete where the republicans would be willing to compromise instead of where he thinks the president would be willing to come promize. but, sometime mon, that said, 47% of the american people voted for mitt romney and the points that he was making during the campaign. don't those folks have any kind of say in this? >> sure absolutely. i think, the country wants, i think as the president said, that he got a mandate for action and i think it is now going to come down to his leadership along with the house and senate
barack obama laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknowns. told the crowd his administration will be vigilant in making sure veterans get the health care they need when they need it. >>> lawmakers have pointed questions about the fbi's investigation into general david petraeus's extramarital affair. they want to know why they weren't told and if national security was breached. peter king talked with cnn's candy crowley today. >> it seems it's been going on several months and it appears they're saying the fbi didn't realize until election day. that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up. >> petraeus resigned from his post at cia director friday and admitted he had an affair. sources said the affair was with his biographer paula broadwell. >>> for the first time in four years an nfl game ended in a tie. the san francisco 49ers and stv louis rams unable to convert field goals to win the game. final score between the nfc west rivals, 24-24. the last tie was november 16, 2008, between the philadelphia eagles and the cincinnati bengals. >>> those are your headlines t
the story on "meet the press." barack obama running for reelection, he might name her secretary of state. >> this is an administration led by a president who said when he ran for office that he would take the fight to al qaeda. we have decimated al qaeda. >> reporter: republicans still charge rice with distortion. >> she knew at that point in time that al qaeda was very likely responsible in part or in the whole for the death of ambassador stevens. >> reporter: petraeus knew it was al qaeda. he agreed to put out the different account. but not, he said, for political reasons. petraeus told lawmakers the cia just wanted to keep secret what it knew, and how it knew it. but republicans up here are not buying that was rice's motive. i'm steve handelsman, news4, capitol hill. >>> the white house says president obama had a constructive meeting today with congressional leaders about the looming fiscal cliff. the president met with top house and senate leaders for more than an hour this morning at the white house. they began talks of how to avert the cliff of automatic tax increases and spending
obama running for reelection, he might name her secretary of state. >> this is an administration led by a president who said when he ran for office that he would take the fight to al qaeda. we have decimated al qaeda. >> reporter: republicans still charge rice with distortion. >> she knew at that point in time that al qaeda was very likely responsible in part or in whole for the death of ambassador stevens. >> reporter: petraeus knew it was al qaeda. he agreed to put out the different account. but not, he said, for political reasons. petraeus told lawmakers up here today, u.s. intelligence wanted to keep secret what it knew, and how it knew it. but republicans up here are not buying that that was rice's motive. steve handelsman, news4, capitol hill. >>> there is news tonight about the high-level connections of joe kelley, the woman who helped launch the petraeus scandal. joe kelley and her sister visited the white house complex three times this year. twice they ate in the white house cafeteria. they were guests of a mid-level worker at the white house, who met the kelley family on a
administration, no, sir knot a lot of trust in the obama team of him, fear that he could run for president, not a great relationship between him and the president, seem to have been repaired, had to be part of the backdrop here, a certain lack of trust. >> well, general petraeus spent much of the last decade abroad, he hasser is thfd country very well. did the honorable thing. we have this tendency in washington to want to tear people down when they have made a mistake, when they have fallen -- a legitimate american hero, he has got great contributions to make in the future. he will clearly have to navigate this very difficult personal issue but he has served this country well and this country is more secure today because of general david petraeus and this country owes him a debt of gratitude for that. >> no question about that doris, as i have said this weekend, not exactly a topic that brings husbands and wives closer together. your thoughts about this in terms of what should happen? >> i don't know. i think in general, i wish we could go back to the time when the private lives of our pu
clinton administration when marginal tax rates were 39.6%. that's what president obama is talking about doing. going back to 39.6%. the economy took off. this should be a no-brainer. you're asking people to pay a little bit more to help out the whole fiscal health of the nation. come on. it's time to -- people have been partying since it's been 1999 for like 25 years. it's time to do this very simple thing. >> martin, i would submit what's so hard about it is january 3rd is still ahead of john boehner. he still has to be reb elected speaker by his own caucus. i think the question is can he make this deal before january 1st and still retain his speakership. >> you're saying to me now that the speaker of the house of representatives is more concerned about his continuance in a position that he holds than the nation's economy? >> well, i don't know if it's more he's concerned. i think john boehner feels he should still be in leadership. >> so his personal ap biggs is more important. >> and he is -- more than that, he's practically a hostage so the same 87 tea partiers who are not there. th
: that was two days ago. president obama was touting what he perceived as economic progress under the administration. but yesterday there was some bad news with regard to unemployment for the president. the weekly jobs report showed the number of people filing for unemployment insurance ballooned to 439,000. that was up 78,000 from the week before and the highest figure that we had seen in 18 months. so is this now the new normal and are the president's policies to blame or was it something else. let's ask our panel. jennifer, rick, and taraa democratic strategist. rick, you're a money guy here. was this totally due to hurricane sandy or what was it? >> probably totally due to hurricane sandy. we'll know within a couple of weeks. if they come back down to lower levels, which is 50 or 60,000 lower than we saw in the latest number, we'll know it was a one-time thing. there is a lot of other things going on. we know that big businesses and small businesses both have stopped hiring if they don't have to and stopped spending money until they figure out what these guys in washington ar
't we have to say that if obama believes what he actually said during the recent political campaign? >> well, i agree with that. of course the administration wants to have it both ways because that's the nature of diplomacy. it's going to let the israelis get a green light here, but they're going to then stop the israelis from doing what essentially is to finish the job. after all, hamas is the equivalent of the khani network. if it works for the united states to use drones and to attack the terrorists that are attacking the american troops, what's good for the goose is good for the gander here. larry, but at the same time you know the game. the administration is going to recognize that the egyptians are going to be placed in a position of having to do something if the israelis do invade, and the americans have a strategic interest, as of course the israelis do, of preserving the egyptian-israeli peace treaty. and that's -- >> but the israeli forces can bottle up gaza and stop egyptian weapons from getting through. they can do that, can they someone. >> yeah, well, that's the proble
. but, martin, this situation sort of underscores how tough it is for president obama to carry the office of the presidency with him wherever he goes. as you just mentioned, he's taking this historic trip to southeast asia. this administration really trying to shift its focus away from the middle east, away from the wars in iraq and afghanistan, and to asia, to sort of be a counter balance to china in that region, but it's really a challenge. this violence flaring up in the middle east sort of underscores how challenging it really is. >> indeed. when he gets back, kristin, it's all about getting a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff or fiscal slope. yorn what your preference is. over the weekend the president reached out to the likes of warren buffett, jpmorgan chase ceo, jamie dimon. what was the purpose of those calls particularly? >> reporter: it was a continuation of what president obama had been doing all of last week which is to get stakeholders on board with him and on board with some of his policy proposals. also to listen to some of their proposals for how to avoid going ov
-end tax cuts expire. what obama had been campaigning on and what voters want overwhelmingly. so you know, the administration has actually been fairly optimistic about where boehner is and negotiating with boehner and negotiating maybe with some of the rank and file who are more likely to come to an agreement. maybe go into the senate. and doing this very publicly. they're meeting with a lot of groups with labor groups, with business groups and they've learned their lesson. this idea that in 2011 last year, they could just sit in a room with boehner, hatch out a deal and all would be done. clearly didn't work out very well. after the election, i think the president feels he has a mandate on these issues. if it doesn't work out, it is a great opportunity for him to go use the pulpit, travel the country, sell the ideas and apply public pressure to boehner to give a bit. >> bill: yeah. can we say hello here to sir calling from fort worth, texas. good morning. >> caller: good morning, mr. press. how do youing? >> b
about it, the only reason we didn't have immigration reform during the bush administration is because two gentlemen, rahm emanuel in the house and barack obama in the senate decided to vote for an amendment to the immigration bills that actually help the union. they were backed by the unions, and they decided that they would poison the well by voting for those amendments that killed immigration reform. nobody talks about that in the immediate, but it was liberal labor unions and those barack obama in the senate who decided to poison the well. he did it again this time, and i think as republicans we have to be smarter than we have been on this issue in the past. we have to look past the easy of the other side and find a rational solution to immigrati immigration. >> i find common ground with that analysis, raul, and i think also that marco rubio has done a very good job of articulating some of the things that emerged from this white house, and not, not, i don't know that you can, you can make a very strong case that republicans have been hostile on this dialog so much as it has been th
